How to read Kindle books from your computer or phone

When my book, THE SOMEBODY OBSESSION: A NOBODY’S DESPERATE JOURNEY TO THE SPOTLIGHT, is released January 24, it will be available in print and Kindle formats.  The cost will be $12.95 for the print version and $2.99 for the Kindle version.

I know I’m going to sound like an Amazon salesman here, but I love doing business with the company as a consumer (did 90% of my Christmas shopping on their site) and as a writer.

The Kindleis an awesome device.  It’s portable, convenient, and it can save readers a lot of money in the long run.  I lugged around Stephen King’s mammoth UNDER THE DOME hardcover for a solid month before I had my Kindle.  Now I can download it for ten bucks and save myself the hassle of carrying it everywhere.

A true-crime project that I’m working on included thousands of pages of documents.  I could have sent the files to Staples for printing, but that’s awful expensive; it would have cost $200+ for the court transcript alone.  I transferred the .PDF document to my Kindle through my computer and didn’t pay a dime.

As much as I love my Kindle, I know that the majority of readers aren’t going to spend $139 or more into an electronic reader.  Amazon has a solution: Kindle apps.  You can purchase Kindle books (or enjoy their large library of free books) and read them on your PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone, many Blackberry devices, and Android or Windows smartphones.

Click here to download the Kindle app and start reading now.  I humbly recommend THE PROFESSIONAL WRESTLER IN THE WORLD OF SPORTS-ENTERTAINMENT.
